Santa Fun Run off to a flying start

Alice House Hospice’s annual Santa Fun Run is off to a flying start with pledges of support from the local business community.

O’Connor Roofing Services and Publicity Seekers have both signed up to become official event sponsors of the festive fun run which is due to take place on 2 December in Ward Jackson Park.

“O’Connor Roofing Services is proud to sponsor Alice House Hospice, a local charity for local people.”

Families and people of all ages are encouraged to take part in the event, which comprises a run or walk around the half-mile route (approximate mileage). Adults will receive a full Santa Suit with under 16s getting a choice of Rudolph antlers or Santa hat.

The run is also supported by Maria Harrison, owner of The Place in the Park which hosts the pre and post event activities including stalls and refreshments; Maria will be providing a free mince pie to all runners. There will be music on the day courtesy of popular children’s entertainer Gavin from Higham Discos.

Janice Forbes, a Fundraiser at the Hospice who organises the run said “We would like to say a big thank you to our sponsors at Publicity Seekers and O’Connor Roofing Services who have shown such great enthusiasm for this event – we are delighted to have them involved and their backing has helped to give our fundraising a great boost.”

Roy O’Connor of O’Connor Roofing Services said “O’Connor Roofing Services is proud to sponsor Alice House Hospice, a local charity for local people.”

Samantha Lee, Managing Director at Publicity Seekers, added, “We are more than happy to support Alice House and we hope everyone turns out to this wonderful event. I’ll be using it to take my four-year-old son on his first race!”
